Create adorable projects half the size of the originals with the Make It Mini Technique Challenge!
Lisa and I had so much fun making these teeny tiny versions of popular projects from the past. Simply take the instructions and cut them in half. It's that easy.
Make It Mini Technique
Gather the instructions for any project or scrapbook page formula and divide all of the measurements in half to create a miniature version.
Mini-Mini Magazine Holder - Lisa
The Mini Magazine Holder project was introduced as the Stamper's project in the 2009 Adobe Collection. The original version is designed to hold 4.25x5.5" cards in three separate categories.
Lisa carefully calculated her measurements to transform her Prism papers into this adorable ATC (Artist Trading Card) holder. Visit her personal blog for details. She wanted a special place to display the cards she'll accumulate now that she's joined the ATC swap on the Facebook Chat Group.
She is currently storing her past Retreat ATC Swap collection until the new swap cards arrive.
Mini Explorer's Box and Journal Workshops - Julie
Stack and glue together several paper die cuts to add as embellishments to the front cover of the Mini Explorer's Box as a substitution for the larger chipboard piece.
Line the inside of the box with text weight collage paper from the Bottle Boutique workshop.
Create the journal with white cardstock. Trim hook and loop adhesive back closures into 1/4" squares to fit the reduced size of the journal.
Tie a coordinating ribbon around the box to hold it closed.
Mini Scrapbook Pages - Julie
Make a set of pages with Beautiful Noise papers trimmed to 6x6" paired with the January 2008 Page Formula. Alter the cutting instructions by dividing each measurement in half.
Adorn the completed pages with ribbon, scalloped tags and Flower Petal washi tape from the collection.
